Question; How would you feel if you read and saw pix on FB about a sibling that got married?

Now then how would you feel when reading and seeing the pix about the wedding and realized every other family member was there, except YOU! 😦

 

yeah! I know, most people think I’m a Vulcan and have no emotions. Most people think I’m a bitch. Okay, I am logical and I stand up for myself. So I get that. However…. I am deeply hurt. Seriously, I love my siblings no matter what. I eloped with Hubs, but after I informed everyone of our decision and why. Which if they eloped no big deal, I’m happy that they are married! YES I AM! where I’m hurt… is not being invited. And this is the sibling and his ‘wife’ that came to visit me when I was in the hospital from my heart attack. So I don’t understand.

Yes, I am quite busy with work, and have my health issues, but really?! I would have been there for THIS!

 

so… now what to do? Pretend like I’m not incredibly hurt? Which so far I’m doing okay with… NOT! I was a little passive aggressive on my FB wall the other day, but okay. I’ve seen far worse.

 

anywho, this won’t keep me down long, it hurts, it really hurts and I can still cry over it. But. It’s time to channel this into something creative. So I’ve started writing, and I’ll be installing some software and hardware this weekend. I’m planning a Maleficent Party! kinda appropriate, no? LOL 😛

Speaking of Hubs, He  is awesome! So he knows how much this is hurting me, and while out and about yesterday, he stopped by our favorite store and picked me up a Maleficent ‘Happy’ Package.

I’m wearing the tee with my jeans today at work, and I’m looking for the horns next! LOL 😀

Everyone always thinks the ‘wicked’ witch is evil, why? Do you know why she’s ‘wicked’? Perhaps it’s something that was done to her and she perceived it wrong. Ya know like not being invited to a family event??? Just a thought…

Calendar day; May 16, 2014

Friday, the 16th of May, 2014 is the 136th day in 2014 and in the 20th calendar week.
General Events:
Wear Purple for Peace Day
May 16, 2014 in the World
May 16 is Wear Purple For Peace Day. Of course, we should all be working towards world peace, simply because we should. But today is about more than that.
You’d think that this day originated in protest of a particular war or conflict. Or, perhaps it should have been conceived by the UN, or another peacemaking or peace keeping group. Our extensive research found no evidence supporting the origin of this holiday stemming from these sources.
Rather, we found this day to be a stellar event. It seems some of you out there fear that aliens from outer space consider earthlings to be too hostile (you’ve got that right). As a result, they have yet to visit or make contact with us. So, some of you decided to promote world peace by establishing Wear Purple for Peace Day.
The goal of Wear Purple for Peace Day is to make the world a peaceful place and, of course, encourage alien species to make contact with earth.   
Do you want to meet aliens for another planet? Me, too! So, lets all wear purple for peace today.

Love a Tree Day
May 16, 2014 in the World
Love a Tree Day takes place on May 16, 2014. It’s a holiday to show your love for trees, maybe by giving them a great big hug. Trees play a significant role in reducing erosion and moderating the climate. They remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store large quantities of carbon in their tissues. Trees and forests provide a habitat for many species of animals and plants. Tropical rainforests are one of the most biodiverse habitats in the world. Trees provide shade and shelter, timber for construction, fuel for cooking and heating, and fruit for food as well as having many other uses.

Biographer’s Day
May 16, 2014 in the World
Biographies dominate the publishing industry’s bestseller lists. However biographical writing has not always enjoyed such popularity, and biographical conventions have evolved considerably over the centuries.
The modern style of biography originated in the eighteenth-century and is most closely associated with James Boswell, who undertook an extraordinary biography of his charismatic companion Samuel Johnson – poet, journalist, critic, and writer of the first English dictionary.
Warm, expansive, uncompromising, and exhaustively detailed, Boswell’s ‘Life of Samuel Johnson’ established a new way of writing biography and shaped the emergence of the biography format that is popular today.
Biographers Day commemorates the first meeting of Boswell and Johnson in 1763 in a London bookshop and it’s a great day to celebrate the genre. Why not mark Biographers Day by reading a new biography, revisting an old favourite, or perhaps even taking a look into Boswell’s ‘Life of Samuel Johnson’ itself.

National Sea Monkey Day
May 16, 2014 in the USA
National Sea Monkey Day is observed on May 16, 2014. Sea-Monkeys is a brand name for brine shrimp – a group of crustaceans that undergo cryptobiosis – often sold in hatching kits as novelty aquarium pets. Invented in 1957 by Harold von Braunhut, the product was heavily marketed, especially in comic books, and remains a presence in popular culture. Initially called “Instant Life”, von Braunhut changed the name to “Sea-Monkeys” in 1962. This was based on the supposed resemblance of the animals’ tails to those of monkeys, and their salt-water habitat. The product was intensively marketed in comic books.
The colony is started by adding the contents of a packet labelled “Water Purifier” to a tank of water. This packet contains salt and some brine shrimp eggs. After 24 hours, this is augmented with the contents of a packet labelled “Instant Life Eggs”, containing eggs, yeast, borax, soda, salt, and sometimes a dye. The animals which hatched from the eggs over the previous day seem to appear instantly. “Growth Food”, containing yeast and spirulina is then added every few days.
